between responses to "odor of gas" calls today, a crew took an engine
to Glen Arbor Rd for their block party. Kids and adults both toured the
truck, tried the hose and received helmets, fire prevention material,
and doo-dads. Fire Lt Jack Welsh made sure everyone left happy. Thanks
to those residents for inviting us (5 photos)

equipment that puts a smell into the naturally odorless gas, according
to information PECO provided Montgomery County officials.
It is unclear why residents are detecting the scent across such a large region, PECO officials said.
The investigation is continuing and authorities urge PECO customers to call 1-800-841-4141 if they smell gas.

LETTER FROM THE RED CROSS:Thanks
for hosting a tremendous first American Red Cross blood drive!
The goal for the day was to have 20
pints of blood donated and the final results were the following:
45 people signed up in advance,
31 people actually registered to
give blood &
31 pints of blood were donated!
155% goal achievement! OUTSTANDING!!!
Since each pint donated can benefit
as many as three patients, approximately 93 local area patients may benefit from the generosity of
the donors that gave blood at Llanerch Fire Company on Tuesday, July 22,
2014. Please extend our sincere thanks to everyone who supported,
recruited, volunteered and for use of the space. We are greatly appreciative of
your efforts, especially since we just went on a media appeal due to the blood
shortage in our region.
If you need anything additional
don’t hesitate to ask and hopefully we can either make this an annual event of
bi-annual event the decision is yours, either way I look forward to working
with all of you again on future drive.
Jeanna Savage / Account Executive American Red Cross32% of the donors were LFC members or family. Great effort coordinated by Ass't Chief Leonard.

Some of the best pictures from Wednesday's
fire were taken by the Main Line Time's Pete Bannan (a former Llanerch
Firefighter & Fire Officer). This link gets you to those pictures
and shows the effort needed when fighting a fire in such heat.
All the Haverford Fire Companies were needed, plus Springfield Fire
Company. Collingdale, Newtown Square and Highland Park, plus Marple EMS
helped cover the town while we were all on scene.There were many tired
firefighters, but none injured. http://www.mainlinemedianews.com/articles/2014/06/20/main_line_times/news/doc53a1f1514fcda166392162.txt
